If a student’s application is selected for enrollment and the parent elects not to enroll the student, their space will be forfeited. Parent acceptance must be indicated in writing and must be received within the deadline specified in the notification or else the space will be forfeited. Forfeited spaces will be treated as new openings and will be filled from the official waiting list.
Accepted applicants will typically be notified by e-mail; however, they may also be notified by USPS or by phone. Accepted applicants have at least 72 hours to respond in writing by the deadline specified in the acceptance letter. If the acceptance letter states that the applicant has not taken a tour, accepted applicants must attend the tour date provided in the letter in order to complete the admission process.
After accepting a space, the student will be officially registered at SDCCS after the submission of the completed registration packet. The packet includes up-to-date immunizations, including a Tdap (whooping cough shot) for 7th grade and a health check-up for kindergarten and 1st grade.
Students will not be enrolled and cannot attend classes without a completed registration packet.
Important information regarding immunizations
There have been some changes to California state law regarding immunizations. Under the new law known as SB 277, as of Jan. 1, 2016, exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California.
